Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Show­biz Reporter

TEN de­sign­ers are set to show­case at the Ibumba Fes­ti­val iFash­ion Fest at the National Gallery of Zim­babwe in Bulawayo next month.

The fashion fete will be held on De­cem­ber 17 dur­ing the fes­ti­val and will fea­ture Kidd Hunta, Ara Kani, Zar­gue’ Sia, Chenna Nenni, Sanah De­signs, Uruta, Bakhar, Yvette Nd­aba, Bulawayo Polytech­nic and Tap­fu­manei Munenge.

For front row seats, peo­ple will be ex­pected to part with $7 while reg­u­lar seats will cost $5.

Or­gan­iser of the event, Gil­more T said: “This year, the fashion in­dus­try has de­vel­oped into a sec­tor that’s rel­e­vant to the com­mu­nity, with most of our out­stand­ing de­sign­ers par­tak­ing in in­ter­na­tional shows.

“We’re ex­tremely ex­cited to bring to­gether 10 out­stand­ing de­sign­ers from Zim­babwe un­der one roof to show­case their col­lec­tions. We’ve guest de­sign­ers join­ing us this year and peo­ple shouldn’t miss this.”

He said the fashion fair was a wel­come boost to the in­dus­try as there were few fashion events in the city.

“Af­ter the abrupt can­cel­la­tion of this year’s Int­wasa fashion show, fashion lovers should look for­ward to iFash­ion Fest as it’s one of the very few fashion events in Bulawayo this year.”

Apart from the fea­tured de­sign­ers, Gil­more T said up-and-com­ing cre­atives would also show­case their de­signs.

“Bulawayo Polytech­nic fashion stu­dents are set to show­case a col­lab­o­rated col­lec­tion just like the group of Bulawayo de­sign­ers from the John Ablaza Project where 13 Mata­bele­land de­sign­ers par­took in the de­vel­op­ment work­shops along­side 31 ar­ti­sans. The prod­ucts from the work­shop will be dis­played at iFash­ion Fest, some­thing spec­tac­u­lar to look out for.”

The week-long iFest themed “Full On” kicks off on De­cem­ber 16 and will be spread at seven venues across the city, specif­i­cally pre­sent­ing seven ma­jor shows in the­atre, mu­sic and dance. her. The char­ac­terter of Karabo has al­waysys been key to the show,” he said.

This will be thehe third time that Con­niee will take up her role as Karabo on thehe show af­ter she leftft the soapie in Junee this year to fo­cus on her other TV projects, in­clud­ing Mzansi Magic’s The Queen. – TimesLive
